I am researching the line of Margaret Alcorn (nee wallace)
married William James Alcorn, both of Glenalla.


Daughter Margaret Alcorn, married Davis Of Glenalla. Had a daughter born at woodside Ramelton and possibly adopted, name Margaret Jackson last known living in Belfast Area, looking for her family who might know her. She will be similar age to my father 60+ no older than 65. She had a half brother courtney Davis, and half brother Raymond Last known in Birmingham UK.


I am aware of Bella Hegarty who passed over a few years ago, my grandmother Jeannie Alcorn (McFadden). Her niece, Margaret Dill who kindly spent some time with me showing me some pictures of my grandmothers sister and her father etc.


i am struggling to find any more information on the where abouts of margaret jackson and or her mother who went to kent and any information on courtney davis or raymond would be appreciated. If anyone has any more information please contact me as there a jigsaw puzzles missing to this lineage of family tree, it will be nice to fill the gaps. Margaret Jackson living in Belfast will now be about 65/66, born about 1947 at ramelton Co donegal ireland. Born at my grandads cottage woodside where my grandmother helped to look after her when she was born. Her mother Margaret Alcorn was born in Glenalla around 1914/16. Her father name Davis from Glenalla Also.
Margaret Jackson in Belfast is the same age as my uncle who lives in UK near me.
